The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes

Caroline Quentin and Piers Taylor’s enjoyable (for us and them) tour continues with four incredible coastal homes

Caroline Quentin and Piers Taylor’s enjoyable (for us and them) tour continues with four incredible coastal homes.

In Norway, Caroline and Piers spend two days at a peaceful holiday home on an island 200 miles northwest of Oslo.

It’s so relaxing that they find it hard to leave, but there are more amazing abodes to see – including a striking cliff-side house in Spain with an undulating roof, a pool and interior design that Caroline likens to ‘an Austin Powers movie set’!

In New Zealand, reclaimed materials abound in an idyllic retreat, and in Canada, a dramatic home sits in a landscape so wild the owners had to build their own road.
